Rendez-vous: Haiti is a new club at Loyola University Maryland

RENDEZ-VOUS;HAITI is now officially a club at Loyola University Maryland!

Thanks to the invitation for me to speak in Dr Peter Lorenzi’s Social Entrepreneurship classes, socially conscious bright energetic Seniors are volunteering to help the project in Haiti.

My new intern Rodrigo  Cordon Villa de Leon is working hard to make RVH a 501 c ( 3) organization and helping with the campaign to raise funds to build a chicken coop during Spring break.  Kendall Ryan, Nestor Cardona of the Enactus group, John Lenart, Raquel Luciw and Justin Lu are all on board contributing their skills to make things happen.

Amazing talents are revealed to me as, for example, Kendall is showing not only computer programs mastery but social-media savvy and Nestor net-works and secures a venue to sell the bracelets produced by the children of the Foyer NDL: those Zanmi solidarity bands are going to be the hottest item on campus if he has his way! These are two examples about how students on campus are effective in supporting overseas operations.  I am really excited to see which other creative ways the students will find to be involved.
